THE STORY:

A smile! We all love a smile! :^)

Smile Train has a single mission to make more smiles. Millions of children in developing countries with unrepaired cleft lips and or palates live in shame, are often not allowed to attend school, but more importantly, have difficulty with the basic tasks of eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate.

A life changing cleft surgery takes as little as 45 minutes and Smile Train works off of the "Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for life" philosophy and provides training and funding to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery in their communities.

Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than one million children by giving them the power of a smile -- that's roughly 350 surgeries a day and 128,000+ every year.

This year I'm pounding 26.2 miles along the streets of NY to hopefully put a few more smiles on a few more beautiful faces

Your donation, whatever the amount, is greatly appreciated by me. However it's difficult to put into words the life changing impact your donation will have have on the children that have their clefts repaired. Thank you just doesn't cut it, but THANK YOU!
